Air India Express is gradually resuming its flights and stabilizing the network, an official said on Sunday, while the cabin crew union insisted that all members who have reported sick join duty. went.

The Tata Group-owned airline, which operates around 380 services daily, has canceled at least 20 flights on Sunday and the situation is expected to be completely normal by Tuesday morning, the official said.

Hundreds of flights had to be canceled since Tuesday night due to a strike by a section of cabin crew in protest against alleged mismanagement at the airline.

The strike was called off on Thursday after a conciliation meeting called by the Chief Labor Commissioner in the national capital and the carrier also withdrew the termination letters issued to 25 cabin crew.

The meeting was attended by representatives of the airline and Air India Express Employees Union (AIXEU).

In a release on Sunday, the union said all cabin crew who reported sick have returned and “there has been no delay on the part of the cabin crew”.

“All cabin crew members who reported sick have joined their duties till May 11, 2024,” it said.

However, due to a recently introduced glitch in the company's scheduling software, it is still showing that employees have reported sick.

The official said flights were being gradually restored and the network was expected to be stable by Tuesday morning.
